Art a GoGo on Tour in Glasgow, Scotland

The trip to London and Glasgow was a blast, but it’s great to be home. It was a crazy week. Kathleen and I both went back to work on Tuesday, then I drove up to SF to attend the podcast meet-up on Wednesday night. I had a chance to meet and talk to C.C. Chapman, Ron Bloom, and Chris McIntyre from PodShow…great meeting and a lot of fun talking to other Bay Area podcasters!

On Saturday, Kathleen and I drove back up to SF to meet some friends for dinner who were visiting from Reno. Whew!…I could really use a vacation!

Art a GoGo on Tour in London! Day Three

Day number three in London. We decided to take it easy today, so no podcast. We toured the The Queens Gallery and Buckingham Palace (very touristy, but definitely worth seeing). The current exhibit at The Queens Gallery is “Enchanting the Eye: Dutch Paintings of the Golden Age.” After that, we jumped on The Tube and spent some time walking around Piccadilly Circus. For you KINKS fans, we stopped and had beverage near Waterloo Bridge and walked across the bridge to watch a Waterloo Sunset.

A couple of things that you must “mind” when visiting London
– “Mind the Gap” – Warning to watch your step when exiting a train on The Tube
– “Mind Your Feet” – Sign on various stairwells on The Tube
– “Mind Your Head” – Sign in restaurant stairwell
– “Mind That Child” – Sign on an ice cream truck
